Jackson's fifth solo album, Off the Wall (1979), co-produced by
Jackson and Jones, established Jackson as a solo performer. The
album helped Jackson transition from the bubblegum pop of his
youth to the more complex sounds he would create as an adult.[48]
Songwriters for the album included Jackson, Rod Temperton, Stevie
Wonder, and Paul McCartney. Off the Wall was the first solo album
to generate four top 10 hits in the United States: "Off the Wall",
"She's Out of My Life", and the chart-topping singles "Don't Stop
'Til You Get Enough" and "Rock with You".
